? >> right. the white house continues to point to massachusetts where 123 people enrolled in the program the first month. that number steadily grew. >> speaking of massachusetts, i thought it was fascinating yesterday, the same man that accused mitt romney of killing a woman, remember that? mitt romney killed my wife. remember that commercial? he was such a beast, a horrible human being. mitt romney killed my wife. barack obama believed that. >> obama did not claim that. the president did not say that. >> hillary clinton wasn't running against him in 2012. >> this commercial was put together by some sort of arm. >> somebody very close to barack obama. barack obama takes responsibility, the buck stops with barack obama. >> okay. >> barack obama and his campaign and people connected to his campaign and people closely associated with him in the past claimed that mitt romney killed a woman. >> okay. the story is bad enough, you don't need to do that. >> can i please make my point? i'm going to say it again, barack obama, his campaign, they all claimed in 2012. it was one of the most horrific
predictions about healthcare reform in massachusetts never came true. they are the same arguments that you're hearing now. >> reporter: as if the week went bad enough revelations of secret spying tactics are creating an uproar here and abroad. tureous though the nsa tracked the conversations of millions of citizens and some leaders. german chancellor angela merkel had her phone tapped as far back as 2002. obama personally apologized to merkel, but there are still questions about whether he knew about the eavesdropping. >> welcome to the white house. >> reporter: when things go wrong president obama often grabs hold of the situation and works to correct it in a big public way. >> nobody is matter than me about the fact that the website is not working as well as it should, which means it's going to get fixed. >> reporter: but this week he seemed overshadowed by the generals and leaders in his cabinet who instead took the heat. >> hold me accountable for the debacle. i'm responsible. >> reporter: kathleen is h sebes endured nearly four house of questions in the white house. >> nothing that ha
rally up in massachusetts, the state made famous for his so-called romney care which was used as a blueprint to the affordable care act of the president's. the president is at war with republican who is have made it their sole mission these days and years to destroy the health care law. while the aca has certainly seen its share of glitches or problems, the gop has gone to great lengths to magnify and in many cases distort the issues. look at the latest headline in today's los angeles times. quote, another obama care horror story debunked. gwen moore a democrat from washington and jonathan gruber an m.i.t. professor in economics. he also served as an adviser to the white house and to congress on the president's health care plan. congresswoman, i want to start with you. i think somebody from mars would watch the congress these days and say what are those people so angry about? fighting like mad from the republican side with all this anguish and frightening anger. and i get the feeling it's not about whether the program is working or not. what they are angry about the democrats
to the first weeks of romney care in massachusetts. >> reporter: now we know the federal healthcare website healthcare.gov . is sick, we know that. we've been reporting that for weeks. now let's go back to when it was launched. we're now getting an indication of how sick it actually was when it was first launched. this site is responsible for attracting people from 36 states to buy healthcare under the president's new law. at the end of the first day just six people we are now told had signed up for health air. just six. at the end of the afternoon on the second day which was october 2nd that number had risen to 100, and only 248 people had signed up by the end of the second day. this, according to the house of oversight of government reform committee who just released these figures. this is bad news for the government because they said b by 2014 they reckon to have 7 million people signed up. clearly there is a long way to go. there is precedence for this. do you remember mitt romney who ran against the president in 2012, well, romney cares will had a weak start. only 123 people had signed
, and they will be lower because of the challenges on the website. with massachusetts, it is the president that makes sense -- precedent that makes sense to look at. you will see that the first month is going to be slow as people begin to familiarize themselves with options and then make choices they want to make when it comes to their health care. the othersident said day just a small fraction of americans would pay more. do you know what that fraction is? >> that is america question. i do not have that figure because here is the reality of what happens when you create a market that provides options to the american people. when you talk about it, and this is the focus we have discussed in the past, joe, on the portion of the percent -- 5% population that are insured in the individual insurance market, they often have one option, one carrier, one plan available, and every year that company can say your plan is canceled and here's your option, and it is usually a worse plan. what happens now to those individuals is they now have a variety of options. they have levels of coverage that begin with minimum leve
preservation commissions i'm happy to work with her again. alicia is coming to us from cambridge, massachusetts to please join me in welcoming alicia to san francisco. commissioners that conclusions any presentation >> i just want to mention and thank tim and the staff for the excellent job they did do at the african-american community forum. i tenant and also convincing if the planning commission. we said hell hello and we'd be listening and very much involved. there was a group that kind of basically challenged the way things were happening and it was good basically, they were saying are you the planning department tlut our history and, of course not that. and i think as we go forward particularly in looking at some of the recommendations out of the historic recommendation report the historic surveys are done and the historic contact statement we pay attention to insuring that and understanding it's done to make sure it's inclusive, you know, as possible. i think the planning department is going to come up with the recommendations of the issues. were brought up. it's very illuminating and ov
about this they point to the state of massachusetts, there's the model. the state of massachusetts during the first month signed up barely over 100 people. this is the same thing. what is your reaction to that? is it the same thing? is it just a slow rollout? >> well the state of massachusetts didn't throw off more people every day than were able to sign up. the state of massachusetts didn't spend $600 million and have 3 1/2 years to get this ready. and just, i think it was yesterday, the governor of vermont took action to delay at least a month the implementation. this is a very liberal democratic governor in a very liberal state saying this isn't ready. if the administration had been honest about the figures on day one, day two, day three, the truth is, we would have already had some sort of a reasonable time out to give an opportunity for the american people to properly judge cost benefit and hopefully, reverse this terrible trend of throwing people off health care plans that they liked, that did in fact cover them and costs less. that is something that is going on every day in
*eus ago in massachusetts -- two days ago in massachusetts saying it is a pretty popular plan, they reined in the cost. it worked for massachusetts, why not the country? >> this is government trying to put this in practice. when is the last time you went to d.m.v.? you happy with that experience? now for health care you've got to go through the same mish. you've had the series of rolling crises. the rollout a disaster. you've got the upcoming cancellation probably of employer-provided policies. and now looming just out there, just ahead you've got a doctor crisis. >> what do you mean by a doctor crisis? >> doctors are fleeing anything to do with medicare, medicaid and the obama exchanges. >> why? >> because they are not being paid properly. hospitals are not being paid properly. medicare is going to lose $700 billion. doctors are swamped with new paper work, new rules, new regulations, and they've got absolutely no protection whatsoever from lawsuits. they predict 90,000 doctor shortage. 90,000 within six years. 90,000 doctors short. >> you know what? on some exchanges they don't even list
of a bunch of women in massachusetts and said, "no longer will these evil insurance companies be able to charge you women more." but when did you last go to the doctor? >> when did i go to the doctor? >> elizabeth is going to answer quite quickly. women go to the doctor much more often than men. maybe they're smarter or maybe they're hypochondriacs. they live longer, i don't know. you ought to be able to charge the people who use the services more, more. >> the affordable care act was a historic achievement for women's health on several fronts. women can't be denied for a gender-based preexisting condition. it covers preventative services up such as contraception and mammograms. but what gets stossel's mustache in a twist is the law brings an end to the discriminatory practice of gender rating, which allowed insurance to charge women premiums costing up to 150% more than their male counterparts. rates are calculated by risk. a healthy woman who regularly sees her doctor for preventive screenings is actually minimizing her risk. or, according to john stosel, she's a hypochondriac. take
are just notes and not official numbers. the white house continues to point to massachusetts where just 123 people enrolled in the state's health care program in its first month, that number steadily grew. but circle this date on your calendar. november 30th. that's when the agency in charge of the site says it would be ready with all the fixes to all the glitches. some analysts have said it will take literally millions of lines of code to get it running smoothly. the biggest dot comes of the country are lining up to end the nsa program of collecting phone data. they're supporting a bill by james sensenbrenner that would limit the scope of what the government can collect and how long it can keep it. by the way sensenbrenner also wrote the patriot agent. at the same time the tech giants are developing technology to protect user information.cgent. at the same time the tech giants are developing technology to protect user information.ent. at the same time the tech giants are developing technology to protect user information.nt. at the same time the tech giants are developing technology to prot
at massachusetts, which under governor romney introduced health care reform plan very similar to what the president is introduced here and in their first month of enrollment only 123 people enrolled for premium paying plans in massachusetts. they had massive enrollment toward the end of the enrollment period. we always expected enrollment figures to be low. we were saying that before october 1st, obviously the website problems have made it worse but that's why we're working every day because the website is just a means to an end. the end here is getting affordable health insurance to americans who haven't had it in the past. >> the administration has called in experts from google and other tech giants to help fix the obama care website and say the site should be fixed by the end of november. >>> here is something for you to consider if you're going over open enrollment options for your health insurance. the obama administration is loosening rules covering flexible spending accounts. cnn's christine romans joins us from new york with more. good morning, clis teen. christine. >> good morning, carol.

healthcare legislation known as romney care introduced to massachusetts back in 2006 also faced a weak start. only 123 people signed up for the bay state's healthcare plan after the first month. by the end of the first year 36,000 people had signed up. but figures tell us that 20% of those left their enrollment to the final month, until the 11th hour effectively before penalties were not having healthcare kicked in. tony, healthcare dot goff may well be in intensive care for now, but the prognosis to keep the medical puns going, but before you take it back daniel our graphics artist did this as a present for you. it's been a long week of news. and this is the healthcare site. it has a little thermometer in its mouth because it is clearly sick. >> we're on fire. appreciate that, and pass along the thanks. appreciate it. >> okay, halloween is barely over but itnot stop retailers from getting a jump on black friday a month earlier than usual. great detail coming up on this program.

-term process. we saw this in massachusetts where the first couple of months were just feeling out and discovering what the site is all about. closer to the deadline, that is when the actual enrollment will happen. that theyou think administration has done enough to educate young people about what is available? why -- and why it is important? guest: they have made efforts, we need to do more. we talk to young people every day. the difference between obamacare and the affordable care act? things like that are not necessarily translating to young people on the ground. what is a deductible? these tax credits -- does that mean i will have to pay the full price up to run and wait for my refund on the road? you can pay the reduced price right away. things like that are very important for young people to understand. i think that we have a long way to go. not just for young people, but for all americans, to understand how this works. host: what is the difference between obamacare and the aca? guest: there is not a difference. the term perception, obamacare has become a political hot potato

're anemic. as we look, though, at massachusetts, an example from '0 s '06. enrollment was slow there too, people procrastinating, signing up at the last minute. we fast forward to now and your home state of kentucky. it has emerged as a poster child for the south. we have more than 345,000 website visits, nearly 60,000 applications started and some 32,000 have enrolled. why is kentucky working so well? >> well, i think the governor made a decision very early on that we were going to do our own exchange, took advantage of the federal grant program to build the exchange, brought in very, very good people and made some very critical decisions early on that i think helped. one of them which the federal exchange didn't make was to allow people to browse the site and browse the plans without going through the application process. so to a certain extent we were lucky, but it was basically the commitment of the administration to make sure that it worked. when you're only dealing with one state and one set of providers and one set of insurance rules and one set of insurance companies, it's a lot
if the massachusetts model is correct. however, this is not just a debate about enrollment but a huge system failing the american public prior to that. people's memories aren't short-term but long-term. they understand the individual marketplace is a complete disaster and needs to be reformed. while there are horror stories dominating the news now, in eight month's time, 12 month's time you're going to see a lot of people saying, wow, these reforms were probably good for the system. >> i'm not sure i quite agree nothing would get done. they do have alternatives. republicans have alternatives. the alternatives leave more people, many hundreds of thousands -- >> we take them at their word on what they propose. that's the best we've got. >> i feel like people would much rather have -- >> status quo -- >> tens of thousands of people stuck in the online waiting room than the realities of many millions thrown off of medicaid. we're already seeing the clear willingness of republican state lawmakers to refuse medication expansion to the neediest members of their constituencies once they were given that opti

both chambers of the commerce in 2009. in 2010, scott brown of massachusetts wins the special election up there after running a campaign to kill the legislation. his victory gives the gop 41 votes in the senate which gives them the power to block any fixes or improvements in the new law. republican governors across the country refuse to build their own state exchanges putting unexpected pressure on the federal exchanges. then congressional republicans refuse to give hhs the money it needs to build the federal exchange. then there's the obstruction campaigns. they include gop darling like rush limbaugh and dick marsh ways to avoid or sign petitions rejecting their exchanges. then there's the gop icing on the cake. the shutdown and the threat to blow up the economy. strong stuff. ron reagan, i want to start with you. this has been a concerted effort. it's like when you read about lincoln coming to washington because the secession movement has begun. they didn't give this guy a honeymoon. they didn't give him nothing. they started going after him from the beginning. >> no. and they haven'
start in massachusetts as well. 123 people signed up the first month, for example. do we need to just give this thing a chance? >> well, i mean it's certainly -- i think everyone agrees that the rollout has been a disaster. the waste of money put into this website is a mess and clearly people are frustrated and they can't sign up for something. >> well, i don't know if it's a waste of money. they are fixing it. >> okay. so i guess i would concede that eventually i would imagine this website is going to get fixed. so i mean i get that part. i think the bigger issues that we are going to face are, number one, the fact that hundreds of thousands of people are certainly being cancelled by their insurance companies when they were promised by the president that that wouldn't happen. >> i want to start with that because i want to be fair about that. the people who are getting these notices, first of all, they have to be offered another plan. and the reason that they're getting these notices is because they don't have hospitalization, they don't have maternity care, they have sky-high deducti
that there would be a very small number at the beginning. we watch the massachusetts trend, which started slowly and built. i think there's no question that given our flawed launch of healthcare.gov, it will be a very small number. >> yeah, i mean, in the massachusetts plan, i think the first month it was 123 people signed up, less than 1% of the overall first-year enrollment in the first month. and we saw the same kind of numbers in medicare part d the first month of open enrollment back in 2006. madame secretary, young americans are the most likely age group to be uninsured, and a lot of us are concerned because of the problems that we've been having with the website, that a lot of these young folks may not come back on, you know, they have very short attention spans. i've got four kids that all work on the internet, and if they can't get something in five minutes, they are on to something else. what do we do, and what plans are in place by your department to encourage young people to go back and revisit that site and to make sure that we're getting young people looking at that site and access

the massachusetts precedents. inyou look at what happened massachusetts, something like 0.3% of what would turn out to be the enrollment figure in that insurance reform program is what they thought the first appeared 123 people. we knew it was going to be a slow build. it is no question it has been made more challenging by the poorly functioning website, and that is on us, and that is why we are dedicating the resources and the brain power to get it fixed. the central issue here, as we talked about before, is not can we build a great website -- it is can we make sure that the american people who deserve affordable, quality health insurance are able to buy it? and that is why the president is so frustrated by the website. more frustrated than anyone else, i think it is fair to say. i will do what i did the other day move up and back. you, jay.ank is there a particular problem that it is trying to address? >> climate change. [laughter] that is a very important problem. i think this is part of the president's overall is to address this challenge that our nation in the entire world is facing. he establ
